Having inherited the monarchy from Christian Carl Frederik Albert Alexander Vilhelm of Glücksborg – the ‘ruling élite’ of Disney~Land has no intention of surrendering any of their power to the people.
A likely member in the next government equated his opposition to the new constitutional draft with the war on communism. Even in the land of ‘hope and change’ they have long since replaced that -ism with another.
However, the aversion towards Europe (and anything foreign) is because of their continued interference in internal affairs. – Politically connected wealth is obviously a problem we don’t have.

Measuring “scientifically” what views we have – if any – is now vitally important. What we think between elections, even in a national referendum is of no concern.

Constitution, Referendum and Communism?
Not only do we have the best bankers and businessmen, but our politicians are world class statesmen.
In a National Referendum: “When democracy and communism meet, – democracy must give way.”

* Pity the poor prophet – Voting Records
Iceland is a republic …
The Constitutional Council has finished its work and handed the text over to us.
Something unheard of in this country happened, the bill for a new constitution was approved unanimously by all the 25 members of the Constitutional Council.
My first trepidation’s from an unfinished draft have been squelched.
I will vote for it, hoping that the political class will surrender in this peaceful revolution(?).
A new constitution has been drafted.
This draft would not have passed in the 18th century.
Platitudes about elected ‘representatives’ only being bound by their ‘consciousness’ is a contradiction in terms.
Delaying referendums up to a year, is a pathetic attempt to separate power from the people.
No attempt is made to curb the powers which are the dictates of modern societies, where governments, parliaments, and courts are but office-workers for transnational money powers.
E.g. article 58 is just dandy, It prevents the nation from defending it self against financial warfare.
This is all the more peculiar as it was the workings of these monetary powers that instigated this work.
The first words of our constitution are, –
“Ísland er lýðveldi…” – “Iceland is a republic” which means a state in which the supreme power rests in the body of its citizens.
The miserable sods that concocted the current text have failed to understand this.
Finally, when the State, on the eve of ruin, maintains only a vain, illusory and formal existence, when in every heart the social bond is broken, and the meanest interest brazenly lays hold of the sacred name of “public good,” the general will becomes mute: all men, guided by secret motives, no more give their views as citizens than if the State had never been; and iniquitous decrees directed solely to private interest get passed under the name of laws.

In the 21st century with it’s non-human global entities, mega corporations and their financial instruments, it is not apparent that 204 (?) magnificent constitutions are of much use in times when replacing of governments and the destruction of sovereign states is but an idle pastime.

What A Wonderful World
The Constitutional Council
The Constitutional Assembly has survived fierce onslaught by the elite and is now in progress.
It appears that the referendum on Saturday is turning into a tactical voting exercise, as the same forces that got us into this mess, fight tooth and nail to secure their privileges and impunity, – regardless of issues and consequences to anyone else.
The Crime That Wasn’t
Justices of the Supreme Court have decided on the fate of the Constitutional Assembly. What’s good enough for England, Germany and France, is useless on this bedrock of justice. Of course such Excellencies are wasted on farmers and fishermen and should be offered as legal-aid to these wretched countries.
Alas! in winter, dead and dark, we tried to teach them Excellence in banking to no avail.
In a failed state, it would be remarkable if one of it’s institutions had somehow existed in a pristine state, unaffected from all the rest. After two years of revelations of incompetence, corruption and criminality, it’s at best sad to see sanctimonious cliché’s about courts and judges, when it is one of the affected institutions.
The “party” has ruled the Justice Ministry for the best part of it’s history and appointed all but one of the Supreme Court Judges. In this current case the court has humiliated it self by acting as an extension to party headquarters. Justices pledging allegiance to the Inner Circle on national television is singular.
To change institutions in a society will take more than a demonstration or two, and the burning of a Christmas tree.
It is vitally important to refer this case to the The European Court of Human Rights so that “entities” of whatever nomination can’t just “unplug” the democratic process. – That form of government is Tyranny – and I will be seeking asylum in England, Germany and France.
Thomas Jefferson was well aware that ‘powers’ tend to forget the origin of their transferred powers when he said, “Leave no authority existing not responsible to the people”.
